Inktober: Metal, pink floyd, psychedelic planets, and surfing.

"There is at the back of every artist's mind... the landscape of his dreams; the strange flora and fauna of his own secret planet; the sort of thing he likes to think about. This general atmosphere... governs all his creations, however varied."
G. K. Chesterton

Cards 23-27

sets 23 and 24: "the wrought iron sets"

I see these interconnecting patterns as segments of iron gates, but you can also see them as paper kites!

Escaping from the drudgery of structured education.

set 27: "the surf set"

Imagine yourself floating along in a sea kayak in Kauai, watching a watermelon and lavender sunset. Now you're a happy camper, right? Ink on 3x3" watercolor paper. Followed a similar process on each card, but happy random imperfections  and intersections lead to different end results, as always!

This year, I'm making inked 6 cards on hand-cut 3x3" watercolor paper each day using ONLY Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay inks + J. Herbin inks.
